Leicester will face Arsenal at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday, and former Liverpool star Owen believes that the Foxes may be able to pick up a point.
“They (Arsenal) have too much talent at their disposal to continue to underperform, and struggle in front of goal, for too long – especially against the lesser teams – and I think they can end Leicester’s unbeaten start to the season by a score line of 2-1,” Owen wrote on Colossusbets.com.
“If I were Wenger, I’d leave Ozil on the bench, as I don’t think he is playing to the required level at the minute.”
“And they beat the Hammers in extra-time in the Cup on Tuesday night, too, to continue their excellent run. So I will add 1-1, the score line in this fixture last season, and Any Other Draw (AOD).”
Owen seems to favour a win for Arsenal, but he is not entirely discounting the possibility a draw for Leicester.
Heading into the encounter, the Gunners will be considered favourites even though they are the visiting team.
Arsenal have a superior team with better players, and they will certainly be determined to build on their 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane in the third round of the League Cup in midweek.
Leicester, though, will fancy their chances of at least collecting a draw from the match, but in the end they may not be able to do that.
